Malta Malta

In the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, between Sicily and North Africa is the island state of Malta. One of the ten smallest European states, this country, consisting of the islands of the archipelago, has become one of the most visited by tourists. Phoenicians and Corinthians, Romans and Greeks, Arabs and Normans, French and British - all who fought for the right to own this strategically important piece of land, left many ancient and medieval monuments in Malta, which are perfectly preserved. Many historical monuments of Malta (Hal - Saflieni, Valletta, megalithic temples of Malta, etc.) are included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.


Only in 1964 the country gained the long-awaited independence, and since 2004 has been a member of the European Union.

The population of Malta is about half a million people, and this figure during the tourist season can triple, thanks to the influx of visitors. As an island nation, Malta is developing water infrastructure between the islands. The development of the country's water transport is facilitated by the presence of excellent natural harbors and ports - Grand Harbour, Marsamxett Harbour, Chirkeva and Mjar harbors.

The settlements of the island state are connected by numerous ferry routes. Companies - carriers Valletta Ferry Services (domestic flights), Gozo Channel (flights between Gozo, Comino and Malta), Virtuu Ferries (Malta - Sicily), provide regular passenger and freight ferry services on domestic and external lines.
